Property Details

Description

Situated just to the south of Ipswich adjacent to the River Orwell is this incredible opportunity to renovate and develop the former Forge and Cottage on Freston Hill. The property, believed to date from the 17th century, is Grade II listed and benefits from planning permission and LBC to convert and extend the forge and cottage to create a stunning, contemporary, three bedroom family home.The cottage is watertight as it has been re-roofed within the last decade. An abundance of period features, including the fire-pit in the forge and heavy timbers, provides a satisfying development opportunity. The lot is offered with comfortable rear garden space for creative landscaping. An experienced property professional may consider there to be an opportunity for planning enhancement.
